For a truly unique proposal, consider the Széchenyi Thermal Bath. The stunning architecture and relaxing atmosphere make it an unusual yet romantic spot.

A walk across the iconic Chain Bridge, especially in the evening when it's beautifully illuminated, can be a magical experience. Proposing mid-bridge with the city lights in the background is truly enchanting.
